Accessibility

We strive to provide a friendly and accessible experience to all users.

We want as many people as possible to be able to access the information on both this site and the systems we build. If at any point you find yourself having difficulty using this site or one of our systems then please get in touch; we’d love help you access the information you need and see how to improve our sites in the future.

Customising your browser

It’s often helpful to customise your browser to help you make the most of this website and the internet in general. The BBC have a good guide at My Web My Way.

Our technical approach

Where possible we follow the guidelines given by the WCAG 2.0. We believe these to be the most up to date guidance when it comes to the accessibility of websites and web applications.

All forms follow a logical tab sequence. Labels are associated with their respective input fields.

Scripting is used on the website to improve usability, but it is possible to browse the website without scripting.

This site uses stylesheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the use of structured semantic markup ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
